Michiko learns best experientially. Therefore, her recommendations are:
1. If you want to learn about gardening, find a gardener to teach you. She has found great teachers in her community garden.
2. If you want to learn about photography, look at great photographs. She has subscribed to National Geographic Magazine for more than 20 years.
Michiko also enjoys great art and owns a copy of History of Art by H.W. Jansen.
